The Last Taboo tells the gripping and heart-warming story of six people with various physical disabilities and an able-bodied partner who was in a relationship with one of them. These individuals share their perspectives on intimacy, relationships and what their experiences have taught them about themselves. The Last Taboo asks us to to step outside of our comfort zones in order to reconsider our misconceptions regarding disability, identity, gender, attraction, beauty and sexuality.

To be fully human is not only about eating, drinking, or thinking but is also about experiencing the touch of another person. This creates a connection which embodies, I not only see you but I truly feel you. As a person with a disability myself, I too want that connection. A few years ago, one person gave me an incredible experience, unlike I had ever felt before and allowed me to explore who I am sexually. This caused me to think about the topic of sex and how people with disabilities are seen as not wanting or able to have sex at all. I also wondered why society subconsciously considers sex and disability as taboo. I knew that there had to be many people with disabilities out there who had stories of love and intimacy to share. Those stories need to be told in order to open people’s eyes to see that the need for human touch is one of the most basic of human needs.
